Acetylide-bridged tetracene dimers

Author affiliations


Alkyne linked tetracene dimers were synthesized from naphthacenequinone and terminal acetylenes. The silylethynyl tetracene dimers exhibit good solubility, high photostability, and broad absorbance leading to photocurrent generation in an organic photovoltaic device.
